Clay Explorations, Our Body, Our Environment
Vessels can be literal and metaphorical in our lives. Our soul is housed in a sacred vessel – our BODY. And, our bodies are held and supported on this fragile yet amazing planet. Through movement and clay (which comes from the earth), we will explore our environment as we dance playfully between constructing vessels in clay and discovering our body as vessel. We will enjoy this sensual medium as we explore the vessel in partnership and in group dynamics while in the outdoors.
